Sexual Abuse/Manipulations Allegation

July 7, 2020 Authored by: Brandon Kincaid
To the UCI Circle K community,
It has recently come to our attention that one of our dues-paid members has been accused of sexual abuse/manipulation. Our board takes these allegations very seriously. We are taking the necessary steps to get more information and determine the appropriate course of action.
While this is still a developing situation, our board feels we must address these concerns to the club to ensure that we aren’t remaining silent. The safety and well-being of our members is our top priority.
We understand that this issue might be of great concern for our members. We encourage you all to reach out to anyone on E-board if you have any questions or concerns. A reminder that we on E-board are always here as a support system for everyone. With the world currently in turmoil, it is essential that we continue to provide a safe and inclusive space for everyone a part of the Circle K International community.
As we stated previously, all of our members' safety and security are and always will be our top priority. We will continue to take appropriate action to ensure everyone’s safety.
We are attaching the website to the UCI CARE center, an office at UCI which provides free support services to members of the UCI community affected by sexual assault, relationship abuse, family violence and/or stalking. Please feel free to reach out to them for help if needed as well.
CARE Center website: https://care.uci.edu/
CARE Center phone number: 949‑824‑7273
Yours in Service,
2020-2021 UCI CKI Board
